the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millio of our citizens are among them. i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practic free speech. he in e ud es coess publications provoke offen offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian and yet we do not ban blast felon blast y. ommaeref o military, i accept people will call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of people to express their true, everyone views that we profoundly disagree with. we do n disso becau we beuse r founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened. we do so becausniver society, experts to restrict speech can quickly become a tool to sil
's to practice their religion. that's all the president was saying. i thought he might be nice value, but was not apologizing for what he did. i would say this, i think it is very important that the united states of israel, this gets the first part of your comic come to be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. as in every family, you wonder how the united front is okay to argue and disagree behind the scenes, but she don't want to disagree in front of our adversaries. so i do think it's incumbent upon both the israelis as well as the american to show some friendship publicly. we're going to have an honest disagreement with the israeli government and frankly i say to president obama on this one. prime minister netanyahu is effectively intervened at our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw red lines that we would use military force if iran does x, y or z. that to me doesn't make a lot of sense. we don't want to have to send american military into battle just because it reaches a level of en
notice and would endanger their reporters. in france, they said, we respect the muslim religion for them, but it is not for us. and they expect us to end our first amendment -- >> we, americans, can not accept that they have their culture and we have ours. we stand for freedom, rights, i don't think that you should back off of those for one moment. we support israel that has their values as well as ours. there is a very different set of police. it is just imposed upon them by political and religious leadership. >> iran. before we get to that, i want to talk about the 1980 presidential election because you were involved with that one as well. and there might be a parallel here that we can discuss. historically, an american presidential elections, 50% of jews to vote for the democratic party. and president carter, the each got 40%. congressman anderson got 20%. those numbers were just historic. it may or may not have influenced the race, but it had a post camp david ethos. yet another un resolution where they passed a resolution saying that jerusalem was occupied. and the occupation of jer
are people who often base themselves on the wrong-headed view of religion, extreme, narrow-minded and so on. and you see it play out in libya with the tragic death of your ambassador there, it play out in egypt, yemen, syria, iraq. afghanistan, pakistan. this is a battle going on in which i think what we have to do is be there on the side of the modern minded sensible people. it's going to be a very tough struggle in the meantime. >> how much about the way we look at these countries is colored by the last decade of experience in afghanistan and iraq. here in america and great britain, their civilians have been killed in these wars, we don't have the stomach to put our men and women in harm's way. do you think that colors the way president obama views these decisio decisions? >> well, it's always better to have a coalition together. but i think what's happening which is different now in the past couple of years from the previous ten is that we interveinte interve intervened, and so on. this time, it is -- these uprisings are coming from the street. these oppressive regimes are being cast off
. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy against our own most sacred believes. i expect people will call me the most awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> reporter: seeing an inflexion point after the arab spring, the president called on the world's leaders to champion the same values. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocence. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> reporter: and president obama resisted campaign season pressure to intensify his rhetoric against iran. instead, he reiterated in stark terms his commitment to diplomacy and consequences if that fails. >> a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained.
the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent libya, i do not represent islam. islam is a religion of peace and love, just as president obama said from this rostrum to days ago. our future will be a future chartered by people like chris stevens, not by people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to misrata for the death of a man who is joined some long list of martyrs five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express my deep appreciation for the actions of the administration following that moment of depression -- of distress. my mission is to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to ensure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people as people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true refle
all religions and all religions' right to exist and be respectful of it. but when a presidency becomes about saying to the middle east, i understand you. i got you. i studied the religion at some point. i lived in that culture. we're for you. and then when egypt and yemen and other countries go to the united nations yesterday and say no, we reject what the president says about freedom of expression. we reject expressly your first amendment, then the president has failed. none of the messages -- >> brian: you would think they would sneak in an apology in their lack of security burks that didn't come up. today it willen about netanyahu. there is more urgency today at this time, at this period in the world to get that nuclear program that iran is pushing forward stooped for good. i got to wonder what he's going to say today because this could be the most noteworthy speech. >> he'll talk about specific time lines. he'll talk about the need to act, about the united nations. >> brian: red lines. >> united nations lead knead to go act by a specific time, to sanction the stopping of the nuclea
in many ways is the quintessential american religion. joseph smith saw america as the promise land, as the place where the second coming would happen and it's a religion, basically, based in and vested in the idea of american exceptionalism. on the one hand, that should enable governor romney to talk about america in that way. the other point that he makes that you alluded to earlier, a religion in terms of its existence in america is based on adrsity andrej pice and combatting adversity and that should allow him also to rise to the occasion during presidential campaign. >> it makes it, presumably, a stronger campaigner out there, given the rough and tumble of a political campaign that's under way. you've also uncovered a really intriguing, pretty good picture that we've never seen of mitt romney before. i'll put it up on the screen. i want you to explain what's going on in this picture. >> yes, we think it's from about 69, wolf. it's gernor rney was on his missionary lead in france as a young man and it was when h was still courting then ann davies who was later tome his wife and
. and basically, he makes the case that mormanism is, in fact, the quintessential american religion. mormanism is all about america being the promised land. and jon finds it a little curious that governor romney doesn't talk about that more because in a sense, mormanism is about american exceptionalism. and the fact that governor romney doesn't incorporate that in his whole argument is a curious thing. and the other thing that he says about mormanism is that it's a religion of trial and tribulation and escaping prejudice and being under the gun. and, in fact, that also is animating mitt's campaign because he's kind of trying to sail steady in the face of all of this turbulence. >> it's a perfect -- it's not actually curious at all. there's a very clear reason why he doesn't talk about it. and it reflects the innate caution of their campaign. they've been worried all along about base voters, evangelical voters and not turning out for him. they've been concerned about that from day one. you could criticize that caution. i would criticize that caution, but that's the reason why he doesn't talk ab
the territory, the thing is that most of these guys don't really even have a good understanding of religion. they just take over the place and they are nothing but really bandits. >> every fighter we saw there said the weapons that the radicals were using, the rpgs, the guns, had come from libya. >> libya. >> is that your belief of what happened? that those are the weapons that then came into mali? and cost you a country. >> there were a lot of bands roaming there, but there were not these sophisticated -- when it comes to weaponry. we had a sophisticated weapon from the libyan army smuggled into the desert by groups. and they have now taken foothold and don't want to let go. and it is so -- those weapons are so sophisticated that the malian army doesn't stand a chance to fight against them. >> when you say they don't stand a chance, is it fair to say if the united states and the u.n. do not get involved, that they could take over the entire country, they could take over other countries? >> actually, we are at the point now that every night i'm worried that this guy would have the idea to c
was to talk about his religion. that was very difficult during the course of the campaign with the conservative evangelical base suspicious of mormonism. the other thing is talk about his record of governor. one of his main things was health care reform in massachusetts. that also was very hard for him to do. >> he's talking about it now. he should have talked about it earlier. it's a big achievement to cover 98% of the people. >> let's put this in the context of the debates, chuck. are you surprised that christie decided and the romney campaign is saying, first debate, hits it out of the park, thursday morning things will be different? >> thank you, chris christie, for at least making the quote, the gaffe, the honest gaffe. the fact of the matter is, that has to be what happens after this first debate. the narrative has to change. the polls have to move. romney has to clobber the president in the first debate. >> if they don't move, it's over. >> in other words, are they happy with it? i kind of thing they needed the pep talk, ok? i think the base needs a pep talk. they n
about his religion. that with a difficult with a conservative political base that was suspicious of mormonism. one of the main things of his record as governor was health care in massachusetts. >> he's talking about it now, he should have talked about it earlier. it's a big achievement. >> it was a risky strategy. >> let's put this in the context of the debates, chuck. were you surprised that christie has decided, do you think the romney campaign is pleased with him saying hey, first debate hits it out of the park thursday morning things are going to be totally different. >> thank you, chris christie for at least actually making the gaffe, the honest gaffe. the fact of the matter is that has to be what happens after the first debate. the narrative has to change. the polls have to move. romney has to clobber the president in the first debate. are they happy with it? i kind of think they needed the pep talk. i think the base needs a pep talk. they need to have confidence in their commercial. i think the idea that both sides playing this ridiculous expectations game. another thing,
to muslims who worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know there's some who ask why don't we just ban such a video? and the answer is enshred in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. here in the united states countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views, even views that we profoundly disagree with. we do not do so because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections,
as it should be. host: does religion played a part in virginia voters? guest: absolutely. in virginia, like in many states, you see a clear link between the level of religiosity, the frequency of religious attendance, whether it is 8 synagogue or a christian or catholic church -- what you see is the more frequently people participate in religious activities, the more likely they are to vote republican. particularly evangelical christian communities, which tend to be more organized in rural parts of the state, very aggressive efforts to connect with fellow members of accommodation to bring out more people for mitt romney. this is the key part of the advantage that republicans have in many parts of the south. it is the presence of organized, religiously oriented political activity. for gin is the home state of the jerry falwell and pat robinson -- virginia is the home state of jerry falwell and pat robertson. what you see in northern virginia, in less religiously oriented part of the state, is that jerry falwell and pat robertson have little impact, perhaps only in a negative wait for many vo
old, mr. melendez. what he did was a serious felony crime and he created a baby, my client is religion, she raised the child because it is h her belief that the child shouldn't suffer and now here is a guy who has had absolutely nothing to do with this child from birth suddenly has an urge to visit only because he is suddenly being made to pay. my beef with the judge is had the judge punished him in the criminal case by ordering restitution instead of sending him off to family court where he was rewarded with the privilege of fatherhood the guy would be paying restitution for his criminal behavior maybe in the form of an amount of money roughly equal to that which he might have been ordered to pay in family court but it would be a criminal punishment and wouldn't come attached to the presumptive privilege of fatherhood. >> shannon: there are two different situations here. the criminal judge. the criminal case. the rape case. he then sent the admitted rapist over to family court saying tamly court, probate court is where they decide with whether or not you can visit the child and what r

but netanyahu laid out his vision for peace in the region. >> we want to see the three great religions that sprang fourth from our region, judaism, christianity and islam coexist in peace and mutual respect. yet the medieval forces of rad call islam who you saw storming american embassies of the middle east, they oppose this. they seek supremacy over all muslims. martha: david lee miller live at the united nations. david, what has been the reaction to that speech? >> reporter: martha one thing worth noting soon after prime minister netanyahu spoke mitt romney issued a statement essentially endorsing and echoing the remarks of the prime minister. romney joined the prime minister's call for a middle east progress of peace and he joined the call to prevent what he called the gravest threat. by that he meant a nuclear armed iran. now yesterday the israeli prime minister met with secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. position has remained the same though. the united states saying that it is not drawing any red lines. secretary clinton saying we are not setting any deadline. she also

to indonesia, people of different races, religions and nations have lifted millions out of poverty while respecting the rights of their citizens. and it is because of the progress that i have witnessed in my own lifetime, the progress that i have witnessed after nearly four years as president, and i remain ever hopeful about the world that we live in. the war in iraq is over. american troops have come home. we have begun the transition in afghanistan. and we will end our war on schedule in 2014. al-qaida has been weakened. bin laden is no more. nations have come together. americawe have seen hard choices made. to put more power in the hands of citizens. and in a time of economic challenge from the world has come together to broaden prosperity. through the g20 we have partnered with emerging countries to keep the world on the path to recovery. -- and worked with african leaders to help them feed their nations. new partnerships have been formed to combat corruption, and promote government that is open and transparent. and to ensure that women and be a part of politics. all of these things
believe that muslims should be freed as christians and others should be free to practice their religions. that is all the president is saying. i think it is important that the united states and israel be together here publicly. there is a separation between the u.s. and israeli governments which is not healthy. you want to have a united front publicly. you do not want to disagree in front of our adversaries. we'll have an honest disagreement with the israeli government. prime minister netanyahu has intervened in our political campaign by suggesting the united states should draw military force if iran does x, y, or z. that doesn't make sense to me. we should want our president to be able to use his own judgment at the time to make this decision. i agree with president obama. try to restrain israel and preventing israel from attacking is the right decision. we should support israel. again, i think the president is showing a lot of wisdom here. host: this is a photo from "the new york times." "train allies in afghanistan, with their guard fully up." what do you make of what some are calling
't conservative enough and didn't put religion into the political marketplace enough. but i don't think that's going to be the widespread expectation of the american people. i think the tea party is seen as a force that energized the republican party initially. but is now really become an anchor around the party. mitt romney has really has not been allowed to advance more mainstream positions because the right and the religious right are holding him back and i think you can find a number of senate seats that the republicans would have captured in 2010. and in 2012. >> we're going to look at one in indiana a little bit later. >> quickly, ed, if it's not the conservative christian coalition that becomes the backlash group, if you will. what might that group look like in terms of demographics at least? >> i think eleanor touched on it at the beginning. if the president is able to win 70% of the hispanic vote or get close to that, republicans and some of them have been talking about it this cycle realize they have to find a way to appeal to the hispanic voters in this country. because if they do
